is ovarian cancer a death sentence?

NO, it's not a death sentence, please do not think of it as such!! Attitude helps with treating all cancers. I am a 7 year survivor of ovarian cancer, had my surgery, chemo and radiotherapy, i'm still here and doing good. Yes it's the silent killer, but with the advance on treatments and so on you can win the fight. NEVER give up the fight.

Carla W
No, it's not a death sentence. How well you do depends on the specific type of ovarian cancer (there are 3 main types), the stage of the disease (has it spread and to where), your age and general health and other factors. To give you an idea with some specific statistics from the American Cancer Society..."If diagnosed and treated while the cancer has not spread outside the ovary, the 5-year survival rate is 94%." Getting diagnosed and treated as early as possible is key.

For more information on ovarian cancer, visit the Cancer Society's web site at http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_What_is_ovarian_cancer_33.asp?rnav=cri

The conventional route, yes, within a year, is the average. Ovarian cancer is not called the "silent killer" without a good reason. By the time it is diagnosed, it is rarely confined to the ovaries. Sad, but true.

But there is never the need to give up. For ideas on what one can do for one-self, you may want to visit "Dhaxem and Cancer" on the Dhaxem website. Having a purpose in life, is what can make a big difference.

Yellow Tail
No, ovarian cancer is not a death sentence. As you will see from my link, the prognosis will depend on a variety of factors as will the treatment.

Jeffrey P
Absolutely not. While it cannot always be cured, it often can be treated and suppressed for long periods of time. Every person who has cancer will do somewhat different. When doctors talkier about prognosis they are talking about averages. Any give person may do better or worse than average.
